The design of this site borrows heavily from the wonderful UK Butterflies web site. Sincere thanks to Peter Eeles for his kind permission to adopt many of his ideas.
We are very grateful to the photographers who have generously allowed us to use their work. They include Jim Edsall, Mark Elderkin, Donna Evers, Nancy Hsu, Roy LaPointe, Maxim Larrivée, Gerald MacKenzie, Angus MacLean, Ken McKenna, Grant Milroy, Julie Potton, Lisa Proulx, Cecil Pulsifer, Dan Rolfe, Phil Schappert, Kathleen F. Spicer, Richard Stern, Rita Viau, Kristine Wallstrom, Ron Wilson and Doreen Wong.
And finally we must thank all those who record their butterfly observations through the NatureNS mailing list, the Maritimes Butterfly Atlas and eButterfly.ca. Their reports are a rich source of data for this web site.
